1 2 3 March Challenge

 1 2  3  March  Challenge.
Interesting colour this month,
word  -  fun
technique is  borders, are around  my photos , edges and  matting

my  colour  photo  looks black but in fact it is brown  paper.

my layout is called Messy FUN
today i have  used  Kaiser Coffee Bean CD 108  cardstock,  as my base,
 Bazzill  blue cardstock strips  cut & places  around the edges.

I recently bought some heartfelt creations dies  & have been wanting to  get into them to use ,  so today's the day. these dies are    from  the Cut, Mat ,Create   range an now i have used them , i will be using more  of them, they are so easy , i hate spending time  on taking out the bits that dont come out, they dont get used  if i waste my tiem  donig this ,and with heartfelt,  this is so good .
i have used ,  Kaiser papers from Loire Valley  Iris  LV 124, this was a kit, but  am starting to use up papers out of them just to use them up ive had this since 2008,  funny , it just had the right  blue  and brown in it ,  i will use the rest of the kit on  something else, i guess .  ( they have red on the papers  so will have to wait for a red challenge  or just   create the rest of the layout into something and wait for photos   ) Lol
 The  lacy corners  are from the heartfelt  dies, ( same brand as above,) used  cream cardstock  scraps

the  Messy  Fun is from  Kaszazz chipboards, here i have applied gesso  over them and while still wet have  pushed my mini circle dots over it  to create  a different  effect.
I have used the stencil, from  TCW  rebekah meter Designs for the  word  - time

also  on the background of my page , i have applied the gesso and while wet, sprayed Kaiser denim and yellow sprays over it though the stencil &   wiped my finger over it to  blend together
the  brown  butterflies , are from A Mothers Art in Casino, new south wales
the flowers  are from my stash.

thanks for looking .
until next time
